Public Body-Critiquing AssemblyAnother humiliating case reported by Alexandra Robbins was a woman who was forced to stand on a bench in front of an entire fraternity, completely exposed.
When she got up onto the bench, the fraternity would give public critiques by yelling out the parts of her body that needed "work".
After talking to one of the women that endured this type of scrutiny and humiliation just to become a part of some social group, she said, "This happened in the '90s and almost a decade later she still had emotional scars."

Saltwater and Rotten Food, Yum!In 2009, a frat at Dartmouth college was dinged for driving blindfolded pledges off campus and making them drink shots of salt water before entering a kiddie pool full of condiments and vomit. One pledge, Andrew Lohse, claimed that he was forced to eat an omelet made of vomit before chugging a cup of vinegar.

Fraternity Pledge Set on Fire by Jon HammIn 1990, a Sigma Nu pledge at the University of Texas was savagely beaten with a hammer and a paddle before being set on fire during a brutal hazing ritual that ended in a massive lawsuit. An interesting note about this case is that one of the main offenders was Mad Men's Jon Hamm who withdrew from the school after the incident and returned home to Missouri.

The Ice Cream SocialA Redditor with a case of Stockholm Syndrome still looks back on his time of being force fed things like "sticks of butter, raw onions, [and] beef base" before vomiting and having to clean up the vomit by rolling around in it. That frat house must have smelled awful.

Exercises in Feces and UrineThere's nothing that says brotherly love more than f***s and urine. Although it is said that many frats force their pledges to drink urine, few documented examples beyond just hearsay have surfaced with discreet details (at least as far as college hazing rituals go... military hazing rituals are a whole OTHER can of worms).
An incident took place at Hartwick College where pledges of Alpha Chi Ro were forced to carry f***s-covered rocks through a forest and do push-ups and up downs in urine-soaked garbage. It's worse than it sounds.
The garbage also contained glass and dirty diapers.
The basement was in the house of Peter Torabkhan, who along with two other guys were charged by state police at Oneonta with first-degree hazing (a criminal offense nowadays).
Another man, Yury Pertsovsky, who was not a student at Hartwick, was also charged with second-degree aggravated harassment for making threatening phone calls to the freshman who reported the incident.

If Someone Asks You To "Cross Bus C" Just Say NoThree students at Florida A&M were charged with man slaughter after making a drum major take part in a hazing ritual called "Crossing Bus C" where the initiate has to walk down the aisle of a parked charter bus while being hit and kicked repeatedly, it's similar to being jumped in to a gang. The drum major, Robert Champion, died shortly after the event.

Who Really Needs the South?Florida State University’s Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity was suspended over a hazing scenario called "Old South" where pledges were made to act like slaves while serving drinks to members of the frat before stealing traffic cones and polishing them for the evening. Then they were dropped off in the middle of nowhere and made to find their way home without their phones or wallet. Several fraternity members were suspended, but no criminal charges were filed.

The Ol' Milk ChugOne Redditor's college story involves standing in a circle around a trash can with his other pledges and drinking as much milk as possible before oiling up their hands and tossing eggs at each other. If the eggs broke they were made to lay in the yolk (and presumably vomit remnants) while a fan blew on them.
